The ALMOND TREE VILLA No 1 and the ALMOND TREE VILLA No 2 share a garden area of 300 s.m. where every house has its own dining table, sun chairs, a large area with Lawn, and a super SWIMMING POOL (10m x 5m).
These traditional stone-clad village villas will be ideal for two families holidaying together or for a group of friends. The Almond Tree Villas are two converted stables, transformed into joining houses. They’re set in the rural hamlet of Vrouchas, a place surrounded by greenery and olive groves sweeping down to the sea. Neighbouring villages, Loumas and Skinias, are also close by. In fact, when it comes to location, it's a great retreat if you’re after little more than back-to-basics for a few weeks.
The Almond Tree holiday Villas have been renovated in this traditional setting to make the most of the magnificent views. And the best place to take them in is from the balcony of the second villa. What’s more, there’s the opportunity to make the most of not only the view, but also the open-plan kitchen area – shared by both villas – for a spot of al fresco dining.
But perhaps best of all, there’s a shared pool in the lovely garden. Indoors, each villa has kept its character. The rooms feature traditional-style furniture, while the wooden beamed ceilings and thick stone walls are excellent for keeping the inside temperature cool. The kitchen, meanwhile, has all you’ll need to prepare meals. Alternatively, head into either the local gourmet taverna or nearby Plaka and Elounda to sample typical Cretan food, in a variety of fish tavernas and traditional 'ouzeries'.
